By Rick Yancey

The enemy is Other. The enemy is us.

They’re down here, they’re up there, they’re nowhere. They want the Earth, they want us to have it. They came to wipe us out, they came to save us.

But beneath these riddles lies one truth: Cassie has been betrayed. So has Ringer. Zombie. Nugget. And all 7.5 billion people who used to live on our planet. Betrayed first by the Others, and now by ourselves.

In these last days, Earth’s remaining survivors will need to decide what’s more important: saving themselves…or saving what makes us human.


I was so excited to read the conclusion to The 5th Wave series! This has been a great series, one full of action, deep questions, and wonderful writing.

I enjoyed the end to the series, even if it was a bit sad. I didn’t cry this time though. I suppose I’ve been ready for it since the beginning. I was home sick so I read this book in a day and what a great day that was!

It wouldn’t be a review of The 5th Wave Series without some quotes and since I don’t want to spoil this book at all, I’ll leave you with this one:

“You’re never perfectly safe. No human being on Earth ever is or ever was. To live is to risk your life, your heart, everything.”
